He's not always the cheapest but he is reliable and helpful. Normally at a lot of medieval shows. Templecombe, Tewksbury etc.
He was at TORM on Friday and was selling everything at £5 per metre....it was all really nice quality....

Out of interest...the lute on your website...is it 5 or 6 course? I can't tell.
